    I worked at Harvard University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people who'll work with you to help you meet your professional goals. Great benefits. The school works hard to provide a space where all are welcome and safe.

    Cons

    As with many jobs where government funding was present, regs could get overwhelming and confusing. Technical infrastructure could use a boost.
